  • Topology and meshed networks

    RF topologies are a key consideration in designing communication networks. Types of topologies include star networks, point to multipoint star networks and meshed networks. Meshed networks provide the advantage that they are self-healing. One device can communicate through other devices, using multiple paths where available, to get the destination radio.

    An example of a meshed radio network is Zigbee. There are other proprietary meshed radio networks too which might be considered if longer distances, intermediate radio hops and self-healing capability is required for a network. Meshed radio systems are a much more flexible technology.
